How to launch this spbackup.ps1

Oct 8, 2008 at 11:14 PM

I'm new to PowerShell Script.  I've installed the Windows PowerShell, but I still don't know how to launch this spbackup.ps1 file.  Can someone please give me some advice on how to start this?

Thanks so much in advance!

First you edit the spbackup.xml to fit your environment. Then you need to execute the spbackup.ps1 script, which can be done in two ways:

1. Start Windows Powershell, change directory to where you placed the spbackup files and simply run the command: .\spbackup.ps1
     (remember the chars:     .\    )

2. Schedule the spbackup-script as mentioned in the project Home-tab.

-just remember this script is designed to run on your Sharepoint server locally and not remotely from e.g. a computer with Windows Vista.

Hope that helps you
